The data were analyzed by SPSS 20, using Frequency, Percentage, Mean, Standard deviation, Independent t-test, Paired t-test and Analysis of Covariance. Results: There was a significant difference between the post-test scores of the two groups (P< 0.001, t=5.49), as the average of scores in the lecture-based group (18.93±1.86) was higher than that in the SMS-based group (16.15±2.68).
